Event Series: Love, Power & Control with Jess Hill

Join us for a two part discussion about love, power and coercive control.

In 2015, coercive control was criminalised in England, Wales and Scotland. More than five years on, what has changed? And if Australia was to follow suit, would victim-survivors of domestic abuse be better or worse off?

Find out in a two part webinar discussion with domestic abuse experts moderated by award winning investigative journalist Jess Hill, author of See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control and Domestic Abuse

Please note: these events will feature closed captions.

What is coercive control? 

Coercive control is pattern of dominating behaviour within a relationship. It may include emotional abuse, isolation, threats, intimidation, sexual coercion, financial abuse and cyber stalking. These controlling behaviours are designed to make a person dependent by isolating them from support, exploiting them, depriving them of independence and regulating their everyday behaviour.
